Zerek Flat Shad Lure - Snag resistant soft plastic Lure
Not all shads are created equally, and not all weedless shads have earned their weedless title without sacrificing strike to hook-up ratios.
The Zerek Flat Shad- lure-is for sale now at the fishing tackle shop, and its design is genuinely super snag-resistant delivering real hook-up power that’s lacking in so many weedless shad designs.
The real benefit is in the hollow belly design, which has two slits on either side of the body, allowing the shad to compress horizontally and vertically, which means that the weedless hook is quickly exposed when a fish strikes.
The environmentally friendly TPE construction is incredibly durable with the resilience to handle stretching ten times its original size. TPE is also very supple, ensuring the body and attractive paddle tail work fish into a frenzy.
The Zerek Flat Shad-lure is incredibly versatile. It’s brilliant onshore and off and deadly in the freshwater. We sell a few sizes here at the fishing tackle shop, and they’ve all been pre-rigged and weighted for optimum performance as intended by the designers.
Sizes start at 4.5 inches and 17 grams up to the substantial 9-inch 110-gram monster. Check out the specs list below for all of the details.
The size you choose will depend on the fish you target. But this series of shad will allow you to tackle anything from yellow belly to yellowtail kingfish.
There are some incredible fish-attracting colours. All designs have been optimised for Australian conditions.
While sold rigged and weighted, the shads will take a variety of jig heads. Whether you are chasing massive Murray cod, bass, barra or mulloway, you can rig for target and conditions.
Choose one and buy it or purchase a selection of sizes and colours, and find out for yourself the real weedless and hook-up benefits of the Zerek Flat Shad design.
